More eaglet pictures

The pictures of the eaglet I posted earlier were of the eaglet with its mother. These are with the father. Eagles form nuclear families. They mate for life and both parents have major roles in raising their offspring. Eaglets, once they mature, will return to the areas where they were born to mate and rear their young. Sea turtles do the same thing, which is why it is crucial that we protect the habitats of these threatened species.

The eaglet is up and inching around the nest now. Its giant head seems to be a little heavy. I think it is begging Dad for some fish. The eagles are so gentle with the baby.
